Available May 7th, 2020 on the Oculus Store.
For the first time, the Felix & Paul Studios Portal will bring together its catalogue of cinematic virtual reality experiences in one space. Beginning with a selection of the studio’s most fundamental and award-winning works, the app will serve as an entry point to Felix & Paul Studios’ experiences. “The Oculus Quest has been a game-changer in getting more users into virtual reality and we’re thrilled to finally be introducing our collection of experiences to a whole new audience.” said Paul Raphael, co-founder and co-director of Felix & Paul Studios.
Strangers with Patrick Watson, was one of the first cinematic virtual reality experiences ever made, launching the studio’s creation in 2013, and inspiring many creators with the storytelling potential of virtual reality. It features an intimate glimpse into the studio and process of musician Patrick Watson.
